Quotation Marks

WSU Breadlab breeds for diversity — hence our work on rye, a winter hardy and drought-tolerant grass that produces nutrient-dense seeds which make for flavorsome breads and crumbly pastries. My aim as an anthropologist is to narrate the story of rye in the U.S. and envision future possibilities.

Regenerative Agriculture

We worked closely with growers, agronomists and industry experts to define outcomes and prioritize the key impact areas that will help farmers transition to regenerative agriculture practices.

What is Regenerative Agriculture?

A regenerative future is one where farmers - at all scales of production - are economically viable and able to invest in practices that restore and sustain the health of the soil, water, and ecosystems upon which the fertility and productivity of the land have always depended.
